Self Cleaning Velocity

Posted on October 9, 2008September 10, 2019Categories TECHNICAL
With conventional drainage, the pipe needs to be installed with enough grade that the water flowing through the pipe will have enough velocity that contaminants won't clog the system over time, thus the term "self cleaning velocity." Siphons, however, are designed from the beginning to have the capability of being flushed with the pressure from the irrigation system.

Nowhere to take the water – Drainage Siphons may be your answer

Posted on October 1, 2008September 14, 2011Categories PRODUCT, PROJECTS

Drainage Siphons can be indispensable on difficult properties. Park Meadows C.C. in Park City, UT hired TDA to design a drainage system to help them handle the spring snow melt that plagued their golf course. The Turf Drain Siphon System that was installed throughout the golf course was ideal for the flat property. John Haynes, CGCS, superintendent at Park Meadows, says, “The system really was amazing. The amount of water we removed was much greater and faster than I had expected.”

The Turf Drain Siphon System is typically used in flat coastal properties, like Seminole Golf Club, where the elevation across the property is minimal, but it can also be used in mountain properties where rocky soils present difficulties grading …
